Perfect location if you are in Stockholm for a weekend or a few days for business. The hotel is very clean, prices are very friendly and staff if very welcoming. The rooms are quite small, but as said for a couple of days or a business trip its ideal and clean. Breakfast has plenty to choose from, fresh and tasty....

I stayed with my family and the hotel was fully booked. It is located more or less in the middle of the city in a calmer street (not noisy). I have stayed here twice with a few weeks between. I did have an issue first time with leakage in the shower leading to water all over the bathroom. Second time...

Hotel reservation online went quickly. Checkin was quick and efficient. Note that if you do the express checkout after your stay you can just drop your keys and get the invoice send to your email. Rooms are relatively small, but clean and amendities are there. Bathroom is quite small as well. Location wise: in the center of Stockholm, so you...

Stayed in the hotel as attending a conference there. Otherwise would not choose this place. All basics in place, no more. My room was small and dark, bathroom even too tiny. In dark Nordic evenings the lack of good room lightning was annoying.

I stayed at the Birger Jarl for 2 weeks in June as part of a study abroad group. I found the hotel to be a hidden gem off of the typical tourist strips but short walk to a tube station to get almost anywhere in town. Loved the breakfast each morning. The room had a typical IKEA/ Swedish decor, but...

Neighbourhood Profile
Vasastan
Vasastan is one of those neighborhoods that almost looks too good to be true. It has the winning combination of a central location, tranquility, and beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s most sought-after place to live. If walking through this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s actually the film set of the famous Swedish children story Karlsson-on-the-Roof. No matter what season, Vasastan manages to impress in the sunshine, covered in snow and won’t even lose its charm when soaked in rain.
